A Royal Air Force Air­bus from Bri­tain was here

Fiji Sun - - Fiji Today -

A Royal Air Force air­craft from Eng­land, Regis­tra­tion ZM400 Air­bus A400M, flew out from the Nadi In­ter­na­tional Air­port yes­ter­day. The Air­bus A400M, which was sched­uled to ar­rive dur­ing the week­days, landed at the Nadi air­port last Satur­day. The de­lay was a re­sult of tech­ni­cal fault. The rea­son for its visit was not im­me­di­ately avail­able. The Air­bus is a multi­na­tional four-en­gine tur­bo­prop mil­i­tary trans­port air­craft. It was de­signed by Air­bus Mil­i­tary as a strate­gic/tac­ti­cal air­lift to re­place older trans­port air­craft. Along with its trans­port role the A400M can per­form aerial re­fu­el­ing and med­i­cal evac­u­a­tion when fit­ted with ap­pro­pri­ate equip­ment. This is be­lieved to be the first time it has landed here.
